Spicy Roasted Makhana is a delicious, low-calories snack that is packed with nutrients and keeps hunger at bay.
In a large kadhai or wok, over low to medium heat, dry-roast the Makhana till they become crisp. When you bite them, they should not feel spongy. The process takes about 15 minutes. Stir-constantly to ensure that the Makhana does not burn.
Take the Kadhai/wok off the heat.
Heat the ghee or oil till just warm.
Add the chilli powder and black salt to the warmed ghee or oil. Mix well.
Add the ghee/oil and spices to the roasted Makhana.
Let the Makhana cool to room temperature. Store in an air-tight container!
